    Note: The first time I prepared this soup, I had added 4 oz. of thick sliced, cooked and diced, Jalapeño Bacon, which my daughter Jenny had made. The soup had a bit of a bite to it (heat-wise), and it was quite delicious. The second time I prepared the soup, I added slices of Maple Flavored Bacon. Today when I also made this soup, I cooked exactly a pound of bacon, and added it to the soup.
